On tap at Ale Industries, pours a clear copper golden with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out lots of piney hops, earthiness, traces of diacetyl and biscuity malt. Flavour is quite herbal in the hop department, along with bitter pine cones and toasted biscuity malt. Abrasive and herbal on the finish. Oily, bitter palate. Okay IPA.

From bomber to pint glass. Crystal malt, floral and slight citrus aroma. Clear copper-orange with well sustained white head. Taste leans to the malt with slight citrus. Moderate bitterness but does not seem like 100 IBUs. A little cloying. Ratman197 (15216) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2017
Bomber poured a clear orange amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of bread, orange zest, pink grapefruit and light tangerine. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, orange zest and light grapefruit with a smooth dry moderately bitter finish. erickok (6037) - Leuven, BELGIUM - MAY 30, 2017
Light copper, nice stable head. Mostly pine malts, prototypical West Coast ipa, albeit slightly more cara perhaps. Somewhat big bubble, but nice palate overall, paired okay with food. (On tap at a Burmese restaurant in Berkeley) DavidWoodruff (630) - Windsor, California, USA - APR 8, 2017
Copper with a light tan head. Aroma of citrus and pine. Some very nice caramel flavors mix in with the bright hop bitterness. Well balanced for style. Medium to full bodied with a lingering hop-bitter finish. Well made - showing off both hops and malt nicely.

#1000 USA beer. Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Dark peach amber. Plaster yeast, dust, cardboard, plaster, doughy. Taste is weird papery dough, sugar, peach, old hops, sugar. Milky plaster body. Old keg maybe? This sample didn’t do much for me, meh. KUEric (977) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 16, 2015
I’d have rated this higher all around, but it seemed tight -in the way a wine needs to breathe sometimes. Like its young and going to develop a little more as it ages --which maybe it does?
Darker than you average IPA, with slightly less head. Aroma is tight pine and resin a little bit less of citrus and hibiscus. Flavor is similar in profile to the aroma, plus a little lemon, a little sour and some malt backbone behind it. kaser (6366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2015
22oz bottle at home. Dark orange clear pour with hardly any head. Dank, bitter, basement aromas. Taste is dank fruit and hoppy with spices. Pretty average bnoel09 (588) - Elk Grove, California, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Poured from the bomber into a shaker glass. Dark amber / copper color with a tan head. Aroma is caramel malt and fresh hops. Flavor starts with some malty sweetness / molasses and follows with some peppery and resinous hop notes. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a long finish. Decent brew but a bit maltier than I prefer for an IPA and doesn't drink like 100 IBU. Seems more like a hoppy amber.
